To-Do Tuesday 92 Weekly Progress Update

I am joining the weekly To-Do Tuesday Linky Party hosted by Chris at ChrisKnits

To-Do for the week of May 11th-17th:

  1. Bind my ombré Planner Quilt. √ Done
  2. Prep for and take Audrey Esarey’s online Watercolor Quilt Workshop on May 16th. √ Done
  3. Work on my Two Cranes Sashiko project. √ Done

To-Do #1

I decided to make a scrappy binding for my Planner Quilt with leftover ombré fabric. I really like how it looks and only had one join on a mitered corner, but it wasn’t too bulky and sewed up fine. I did take it to work but didn’t like how it looked on the loveseat in my office, but it sure looks nice outside next to our Amish wagon planter that has a load of petunias. But the perspective is off in the photo as the quilt only measures 34.5” across and is 32” long. I will probably sew a hanging sleeve on it and hang it above my bed when I put my Blithe quilt back on it. 

To-Do #2

No one who has read my blog for long would be surprised that I chose to include gradations of teal in my Watercolor class quilt, but the yellow-to-brown half might even shock some folks! I was very excited to take this class that combines color gradation with curves. Unfortunately I had a family emergency and could only partially participate in the class. Audrey is going to graciously allow me to take the class again at a later date. I’m pretty sure I picked up on the broad strokes of the class but am sure I missed some of the nuances. Things have calmed down a bit, and I’ve been able to cut most of the pieces and have started to sew a few together. I hope to share some of my sewing progress next week.

To-Do #3

I made good headway on my Two Cranes Sashiko project and was able to get one crane completely stitched. I like how the pencil yellow thread contrasts again the dark blue background. 

To-Do for the week of May 18th-25th:

  1. Bind my Ombré Star quilt that is for my great-niece, Sophia’s high school graduation in June.
  2. Work on my Watercolor quilt.
  3. Continue to work on my Two Cranes Sashiko project.

  1. Mary, I love the ombre quilt! I can’t remember do you do the Sashiko by hand or machine? The cranes are stunning, the yellow really pops against the blue!


  2. Oh, that finished quilt is a beauty! I’m so sorry to hear about the family emergency, but glad that you will be able to catch up on the class. The fabrics you’ve chosen are gorgeous, so I can’t wait to see it. Your crane Sashiko is really looking good!

    Hi Mary! Your Planner Quilt turned out so great. It is nice and happy looking and will make a wonderful wall hanging. I always seem to have a seam in a mitered corner no matter how I try not to, darn it. I’m sorry you weren’t able to complete the watercolor class (and I hope all is better now), but how wonderful of Audrey to allow you to repeat the class at a different time. I know you were really looking forward to it. And finally, your crane looks fab. Just about any color thread would look so nice on that pretty dark blue fabric. Happy Tuesday and good luck with this week’s list! ~smile~ Roseanne

    The ombre is very pretty and I love your little “hanging” spot!


  5. Those sashiko cranes are turning out wonderfully! I love the ombre quilt, too – the binding is perfect for it. Looks like you have a great idea for holding pieces of fabric and parts for a quilt in progress!


  6. The ombre project is going to be fun to see to come together!

    really like your Sashiko…I’ve wanted to try this for a while.
    I’ll have to check it out. Have a great day!


  8. Love the Planner quilt and especially that binding. Pretty setting with that wagon. I really enjoy seeing your Sashiko, and I like that pencil yellow!
